‘After the protests, I realized we have allowed hate to grow so much we can’t get through to one another. I’m always curious where hate stems from because I love so deeply.’
‘The word #nyamuri has a dark past most of us aren’t educated in. It shocked me to find the amount of people who believe it is only synonymous to a direct translation describing one tribe but IT ISN’T. It has its own history .’

– Di’Ja on her single “Inyamuri”


Di’ja (Full name: Hadiza Blell) began her music career in 2008. Her debut single, “Rock Steady” was nominated for Best Urban/R&B Single, 2009 Canadian Radio Music Awards, while she won the Best New Artist award at the 2008 Beat Music Awards.

Since then, she has released several other singles and is known to infuse her dialects – Hausa (Nigeria) and Krio (Sierra Leone) – into her music. Di’Ja signed under Don Jazzy’s Mavin Records in 2014, and “Yaro,” was her first official single under the label.

“I truly hope the messages we worked to pass, resonate with you. Everything has a history and believe some songs off this EP will have you questioning.
On my journey to this EP, I realized we’ve failed at teaching history in our schools. Without history, we can never be empathetic to one another’s plight. It’s deeper than you think! May we be guided accordingly to pass the messages we choose to pass. #onelove “
